But there doesn't appear to he much hope. "Our bunch numbers about 1,500 and WE think the city owes us about $3 million it look out of our pay checks in the Great Depression years of the 1930s," s a i d Abner Bender, ringleader of the over-70 group. "If we are going to get the money it had better be soon -a lot of us won't lie around much longer," he said. "Maybe we should be called the under- thp-giin gang." Bender, 74. was on the Chicago police force from 1922 un- Lil retiring in 1950. His group lias hired attorney John Cusak Jr. to push its case. "Back in the Depression the city simply didn't appropriate the money lo meet the full paychecks, it didn't have the money to give," Cusak said. "There isn't too much hope of getting it now. but we are researching the entire legal question." NEVER PAID "Almost every payday the another man as an excuse. This fellow is 18 years older than I am, and he is divorcing his _ as you second wile. Now I'm not sure I want him. but he stays glued to the idea that we're going to make it together. He says he loves me and my kids, and I must admit he has been good to us, but it scares me to think I'm going to be tied down again. I got married at IB and didn't have a chance to meet anyone but my husband. (My parents were strict and believed it you dale a guy you marry him.) I'm young and want to enjoy life for a while -- and enjoy my beautiful children, too, whom I love dearly. Must I jump right out of one f r y i n g pan into another? I know this "other man's" wife will lake him hack, only he claims he doesn't love her. I've discovered I don't like being the other woman!

A clean break may send him back to his wife -- if anything Dear Mr. and Mrs. N.: Since nudity, to these girls, means nothing more than being without clothes and evidently embarrasses neither them nor you, why make an issue of it would if you self- consciously looked the other way? If you don't approve, Mrs. N., then ask the girls to shower in their suits. -- H. Dear Helen: In response to your column concerning beards: I grew my beard four years ago. In the interim, I've had to give up the privilege of holding a sharp steel edge to my face, thus missing out on the opportunity to slice it up. This sacrifice hasn't been without reward. I've enjoyed five to ten minutes more sleep each morning. R a z o r blade purchases have become ancient itisloi'y. People recall my name more readily as a consequence of my bearded visage. Your reader inquired, "Are By JOHN CUNNIFF Business Analyst NEW YORK. (AP) -- If you begin your day's activities with a pocketful of pennies, you soon will have .none--thanks to sales taxes, those 89-ceul bargains and an array of former Ifl-cent items that now sell for 11 and 12 cents. If you start out in the morn ng without any pennies in your pocket you soon will have iome, for the same reason. Thus you should be in great shape for the next day's transaction. You should be. hut you probably won't be. · The pennies that you galh ered yesterday and which could be used today quite likely end ed up in a coffee jar or a desk drawer, retired from circula ion as a nuisance that wears hrough trouser pockets or mndbags. And so, while currency of all sorts declines in value at a steady pace, the demand for the lowly penny is rising. The Lf.S. Mint claims there is a lost lode of copper made up of bil lions of these lowliest coins in the realm. "Somewhere in country of ours, in excess of 31 billion pennies are in hiding.' says Mary Brooks, the mint di rector. "They are in dresser drawers, shoe boxes, pickle jars. These are the pennies 1'rr looking for." The mint now offers an Ex ceptional Public Service certifi cate to those who cash in $2 worth of pennies at a bank nex Appearing Ad month. And some hanks on their own offer a liny bonus to entice coin hoards back into circulation. In spite of effort, there still remains some question of whether the coins will sit or circulate. Besides being a nuisance and the most versatile coin at one and the same time, pennies are saved because: --Just because. Americans in he past few years have taken to saving almost any kind of s o l i d object-medals, commemorative plates, gold coins, barbed wire. Presumably they present stability in an unstable world. ; --The price of copper is rising. The value of copper in tftt penny is worth just a bit less t h a n Us face value. But wUh copper prices rising, the penny soon may be worth more than one cent. --Fears exist that a less expensive metal will be substituted for the copper in pennies. Aluminum is most commonly referred to as a substitute. ~, For these reasons the U:S. mint just can't keep banks supplied, although in the past 514 years it has produced 62 billion pennies.

A funeral home spokeswoman said Tuesday the firm received telephone calls threatening to burn the funeral home. The funeral for DeFreeze, de- · scribed by police as a leader of the Symbionese Liberation Army, is set for Thursday.

"They said we would get our money hack later, but we never did. In those days patrolmen got $99.21 every two weeks. We didn't quit and get another job because there weren't any." lie figures those still alive -including widows -- are entitled to about $2,150 each. Henry Wcler, Chicago corporation counsel, shudders at legal problems involved. "For instance, the heir.s of lead policemen might sue the cily for money." he said. 'They could contend Chicago was discriminating against men who had died before it decided to pay." Weber and Ctisafc agree the case comes under the doctrine of laches, which holds Hint a lawsuit must le filed within a reasonable period of time.

Dear Helen: With all the "streaking" this spring, we want to discuss similar situation. We have a secluded summer cottage on the shore of a mountain lake. Our daughter, a popular c o l l e g e freshman, always has several girl friends around as weekend guests. After each swim, these youngsters enjoy using our open backyard shower. They have so much fun that they don't even notice the presence ot my wife and myself. However, there is one little hitch: they prefer to TAGO GRANDE BUY 2 SANCHOS AT REG.
